Travel dogs on plane

A blog for people who want to travel with their small dog

Taking a small dog on a plane isn’t the only thing I write about, but it’s the topic that got me started as a blogger. It’s also the topic you have the most questions about.

Here is all the information I’ve collected about in-cabin pet travel, organized in a way that I hope you’ll find useful. You’ll find a handful of reference pages (including a list of airplane under-seat measurements; charts of U.S. and international airline polices for in-cabin pets; and a list of airport pet relief areas we’ve learned about). You’ll also find a bunch of categories: Click on a topic that interests you, and you’ll get a list of relevant blog posts. I’d start, though, by clicking on the posts under “Start here” — they’ll help you get oriented.

Where are you traveling and for how long? you would have to call the airline and ask them. Also make sure your pup wont be put in with the baggage Which is common practice.. its not heated or cooled down there, your poor dog could get really sick, or worse.. honestly if they wont allow your dog in the cabin with you, and your just going on vacation or something i would try to find a dog sitter or something.
